The main point with the GX1 is that lenses are expensive.

Oly 40-150mm-    $99.00

Oly 17mm f/2.8   $175.00

Panny 14mm f/2.5  $200.00

Sigma 19mm and 30mm together $200.00

Legacy lenses:  about $10.00 - $75.00

Where are you shopping for lenses? These look like second-hand prices.

Oly regularly sells the 40-150mm for $99.00 if you buy a body with it.  Not infrequently, the 40-150mm is sold alone for  under $150.00.  Do a search on this forum.

The 17mm can often be had for $175.00 new.  I bouight mine from Abe's of Maine for that price.

Same with the Panny 14mm.

Sigma had a sale on the two lens package a while ago; again do a search of this Forum.

You aren't paying full retail  price for lenses, are you?

Nobody does that!
